Plateauville! Never giving up...
Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Months and months and months of being the same weight I was running out of ideas. I've tracked and stayed in different ranges (between in the sparkpeoples suggested low and high). I've done strength training and cardio, zumba, 21 day Fix, Supreme 90, walking a few miles everyday, my bike, elliptical... still sitting at exactly the same weight I was months ago.
So my husband asked me what I did to lose the weight the last time. It was racquetball! We used to play for a few hours a day.... 6+ hours a week. I loved it. I enjoyed it. It wasn't work. It was fun!
But the closest courts are 25 minutes away and I already have a gym membership to a local gym (that I rarely go to!).
He came home Monday and said, "We are going to the racquetball courts and signing up. We aren't waiting til the other gym ends its one year contract, and I don't care that it takes 25 minutes to get there. We are going!"
So we went and signed up and played for the first time in 2 years. Wow! I was pooped!
This is it. I can feel it. This is what is going to make me happy and get me past this plateau.
My advice....Never ever quit trying. If something isn't working there are hundreds of different things you can try.
If I'm wrong and I'm still stuck at this weight then I will try adding something else.
It's hard. I've shed many tears at my feeling of failure. Questioning why I have bothered trying for so long and so hard. But my amazing husband is my support, as are two amazing spark friends. I'm reminded of why I began this journey and that I never want to climb up to an even unhealthier weight.
I visited Plateauville for a few months now, far too long. I'm ready to pack my bags and get out of here!!
